    My turn to repair the roof - Going to be a busy couple of weekends!

    stay away from flaked or particle board. it's water resistance is much less than plywood. Try to use one for outdoors use with out being treated. There is a difference in the construction adhesives compose the make up of the plywood.

    Any foreseen problems with vinyl flashing? If not, what adhesive?

    I picked up a 50'x12" roll of just plain silver aluminum flashing that they use in hips and valleys during the roofing process for around 20 bucks @ Menards. Aluminum will expand and contract as well. I used adhesive. Make sure it will remain flexible and spread an even amount across all...

    77 Starcraft Redo

    Looks good. Interesting thought of incorporating arched bows into the roof. I'm assuming the skin was kind of stretched from the underside giving up the ghost, to allow for the added arch. That may have been an interesting addition to have incorporated into my roof when I rebuilt mine. I'm also...

    Starcraft Galaxy 6, '78 Roof Rebuild

    Mine as well had the putty under the strip. When I reassembled I used "liquid" Butyl in a caulk dispenser. I used those an any sealing areas that I considered a compression fit. It dries really slow and stays flexible. Butyl used to be used to affix windshields in automobiles. Everything I...

    Starcraft Galaxy 6, '78 Roof Rebuild

    About a year ago I was blessed with a free pup [PU] that was basically handed to my family by my wife's family. Right away we knew there were problems that started with the roof. The lights did not work, the wood frame had large amounts of rot, and the top of the roof looks like a thousand...

    Stripes, Decals and such

    I wouldn't mind coming up with some original starcraft signage for a late 70's galaxy 6. I Paint cars for a living and plan on a custom paint job, possibly flames. I'm using aluminum that you would find on a semi trailer and thinking of taping off flames and polishing the rest of the top to a...

    Sweet! Thanks for the tip. On a side note for those rebuilding older pre 80's pups... Just got off the phone with starcraft and they do not have build diagrams on record for the older pup ups like mine [:(]. Back to re engineering for me.
